A massive wall in Alexandria, Egypt is covered in images of Egyptians who died during the country's revolution against the regime of its longtime dictator, Hosni Mubarak. The wall was painted by Alexandria's youth shortly after the fall of Mubarak.
Eighteen-year-old student Yasser Alaa photographed the 'Wall of Martyrs' in his hometown for NewsHour Extra.
The website 'Egypt Remembers'
provides photos and details about many of those who died during the 'Arab Spring' protests of 2011.
